This used to be a fancy hotel, with conference and banquet rooms and an atrium and all that stuff. A few years ago, we spent the night there when the dust from a home renovation project got the better of us, and it was clear that it wasn’t the place we remembered. The best amenity we got then were what I called “exfoliating towels” which were made (I am almost positive) from sandpaper.
And the slide down continued, and now, here we are: it’s being demolished. No word on what’ll be taking its place.
Every now and then I get the idea to venture out and do some street photography. And since I don’t really even know how to do street photography in a way that is, you know, good, the best I can achieve so far is mixed results.
And here’s an example of some mixed results – a guy painting the arch above a doorway at a train station. You can’t see it in the photo (remember when I said “mixed results”?), but he was using a tiny paint roller.

The gentleman who was mowing the lawn across the street from the church was mightly interested in what I was doing. I guess they don’t get too many photographers wandering around town.
Anyway, I ducked out of his view, down a sidewalk, and was rewarded with the sight of the sun cutting through the old pressed glass windows.

And here’s the view I am sure you’ve all been waiting for: inside the 2,500 seat Helen DeVitt Jones Main Theater. The inaugural season will be announced soon…
